Sat, Dec 21, 2013, 01:01 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 21, Colombo: Ally of Sri Lanka's governing party, the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) has called on main opposition United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Mangala Samaraweera to reveal the names of legislators who are allegedly involved in drug trafficking.

Leader of the JHU, Ven. Omalpe Sobitha Thero told the media that Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa should ask Samaraweera to reveal the names of MPs who are allegedly involved in drug dealing since the UNP MP had stated in parliament that many parliamentarians were involved in drug trafficking.

He remarked that there has been an increase in drug dealings and related issues in the country and everyone should join forces to fight against these issues.

The Thero added that all other MPs should call on Samaraweera to reveal the names of the parliamentarians involved in drug trafficking.

According to Ven. Sobitha Thero, Samaraweera would eventually be identified as a member of the drug mafia if he fails to reveal the names of the alleged drug dealers in parliament.
